Workshops or group counseling sessions at the CAPS Center provide opportunities for students with common concerns to meet in a safe and confidential setting and explore current issues that are affecting them. Members can anticipate learning new information and skills to improve their interpersonal, emotional, or psychological well-being, while receiving support, encouragement, and guidance from other members.
Current workshops and groups are listed below and/or along the right side of this website (under Upcoming CAPS Events):
This workshop series is geared towards students learning how to manage life's challenges, disappointments, setbacks, and distressing current events with more resilience. These workshops focus on factors related to resiliency such as reframing “failures”, adopting a growth mindset, accepting one’s feelings as well as life challenges, sustaining one’s health, and reflecting on one’s strengths, goals, and needs. And, the workshops are intended to be interactive, so you’ll have opportunities to bounce experiences and suggestions around with other students.
This program includes Ted Talks and activities that are designed to enhance resiliency. Discussion topics rotate each time, so every session has something new!
These workshops are open to all students… regardless of whether you’ve ever attended other services at the CAPS Center before.
No appointment is necessary for these workshops, just come! You can attend as many or as few of these workshops as you’d like, at any time across the semester.
